The crisis in the feud between Bismark and the emperor is becoming acute. In a conversation at an official dinner last night the emperor remarked that the attacks inspired by Bismark were aimed at him and he feared he would soon be obliged to take severe measures to suppress these attacks, which were dangerous to the government and the empire. It is reported that Chancellor Caprivi has been instructed to publish a warning to Bismarck's paper, the Hamburger Narchrichten, to cease publishing its pretended revela tion of government affairs on pain o pros ecution. The Narchrichten published yesterday an article which caused a sen sation. It declares the recent changes in the army general staff to be due to the fact that Waldersee and other offi cers were working to bring on a war with Russia. The article repeats other charges that Waldersee has already de nied, but which have acquired fresh sig nificance from the removal of his inti mates, Majors Zahn and Siebert from the general staff. The emperor had a prolongued conference yesterday with the chancellor and minister of justice. It is difficult to believe that the emperor means to go to the length of prosecuting Bismarck, yet his uncontrolled intensity of irritation supports the rumor that he will do so. The tone . of an inspired note in the North German Gazette indi cates that a milder form of expression will be tried before Bismack is per sonally challenged. Development of the feud are watched with the keenest inter est. The adherents of Bismarck say the prince does not fear prosecution, and is ready to meet, and perhaps wants to provoke it. At an official dinner last night representatives were present from every political section in the reichstag except socialists. The emperor gave them his opinions on all the topics of the day regarding legislation, etc. WATERWAY FLANS. Legislature Committee Should Agree With the Convention. Walla Walla, Feb. 14.

Thompson, at Olympia, Wash. : "We respectfully ask such an amend ment to your memorial as will make it in harmony with the wish of the water way convention, as expressed in their congressional memorial, which asks for a boat railway at The Dalles and comple tion of the canal at the Cascades.

Hill Grows Sarcastic. New York. Feb. 14. Governor Hill, who is stopping at the Hotel Normandie, was shown Watterson's second letter. and was asked if there was anything he had to say about it. "I have only this to add," said the governor: "Mr. Watterson now affirms that the letter felt to be offensive in its defense of me, and in motive and role assigned to me, was in fact written by him, and in fact written at the time of its date. My reasons for believing the letter a forgery were three : First, I had never received it; second, I thought Kentucky good manners would have re quired my receipt oi tne letter ana my assent before its publication ; third, it says the writer never held office, and I remember Mr. Watterson's brilliant career in congress. I do not seek to fathom Mr. Watterson's motives, and I accept whatever explanation he oners." Fraudulent Fertilizers. San Francisco, Feb. 14. Professor E. W.

No account of the jewels worn by women prominent in Washington society would be complete without a mention of the magnificent diamond necklace par chased two winters ago by Col. John D. Longhorne for bis wife. The necklace', brought to Washington by a dealer in precious b tones, was first placed on ex hibition by one of the leading jewelers in the city, and for several weeks there after was more widely talked and written about than anything of the kind since the international discussion over the dia monds sent by the khedive to Gen. Sher man's daughter upon the occasion of her marriage to Lieut. Thackara, The stones were not only of unusual size, but each one was absolutely flaw less, and it was said that the collector had traveled from end to end of Europe in order to obtain the number of stones necessary for the completion of the neck lace. Finally, after many conflicting rumors as to the ultimate destination of the necklace, it was purchased for a small fortune by CoL Langhorne as a Christmas present for his wife. Subse quently it was decided to place it for safe keeping in the vaults at Bigg's bank until the undesirable tumult of talk con cerning it had subsided. Washington Letter. Miss Abbott's Care of Her Health. Miss Abbott's illness is a grim sarcasm upon the exceeding care which she took of herself for the last twelve years. No other woman upon the stage exercised greater vigilance in the protection of her health. The pains which Miss Abbott took to secure proper rest and sleep made that lady a veritable terror to ho tel proprietors. She invariably insisted npon a room at the top of the house, and this apartment had to be hung around with blankets and quilts to exclude light' and noise. The dread of draughts kept her in constant terror, and never during the season would she venture out of doors without being enveloped in furs . and rags. Of horses she was particul arly afraid, and, although she was compel If d to employ them- almost constantly, i3 never had a feeling of security whi i:i a carriage.
